Covid-19: A Workplace Hazard – Lessons Learned
Join Harold Carroll, Executive Director Occupational Health and Safety, Nova Scotia Department of Labour and Advanced Education for a reflection on how the work of the Safety Branch evolved in response to Covid-19 and a new innovative approach to service delivery emerged with greater connection to the needs of small businesses.
At a time when Small Business owners’ needs were uncertain and refusal to work was a growing concern, the Safety Branch Information Services Line (1-800-9LABOUR) became a life-line for some and continues to provide information and support. Infectious disease is both a Public Health matter and a workplace safety issue.
There will be time for Q&A at the end so register and submit your questions to the presenter in advance!
